ENGL 417 - Space and Place

FC ARHU WADV
4 credits
The work of cultural geography seems more salient than ever, given the attention to border disputes, climate change, the global economy, and urban development. This seminar, which prepares English majors to exit the program by way of a substantial research project, draws attention to critics (Foucault, Glissant, Harvey, Heidegger, Jameson, Massey, Soja, and more) helping us to understand space and place, in order to establish a foundation for examining textual manifestations of everything from the description of a bedroom to the depiction of interstellar planets and to develop a keener sense of how the spatial provides a meaningful analytic for reading literature and beyond.
